Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb". One of the tools that you may want to have is some gloves. Now these are just cloth gloves. And a lot of times we think ladies like to have cloth gloves, some guys do as well. If you use gloves, remember there can be things in your soil that you just haven't accounted for. Sometimes there are sharp little pieces of glass, sometimes there's roots, sometimes there's something in that soil may tend to cut you. If you got something like this, you've got something that has been reinforced and sewed at the ends, so it's going to be a little bit more security to your fingers. And I tell you, the first time you use gloves and you don't cut up your fingers because you find something sharp in the soil, you're going to be glad that you went the extra mile and bought a pair of gloves. This is sort of a pretty pair of gloves, you can see it?s got the little decorative flowers on them and things, so it's very pretty. Yeah, you might think of the ladies, but some of you big strong guys might want to have it as well. Gloves help make a difference in a good garden. If you're working with peat moss, you're working with some of the other materials, you know it isn't chemically resistant, but it will help make a difference in your garden.
